Destination Assurance Committees to ensure high standards in Tourism sector

Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett says the establishment of Destination Assurance Committees in resort areas will ensure that high standards are maintained in the sector.

Speaking at the first meeting of  the Negril Destination Assurance Committee on Thursday, Bartlett said Jamaica’s tourism product must be of  the highest level, in order for the destination to remain attractive.  
   
He said the aim is to improve infrastructure in Negril and engage with residents to ensure that the town and Jamaica are viewed as favourable to visitors.
  
The Negril Committee comprises representatives of  the Negril Green Island Area Local Planning Authority; the police and army; the National Solid Waste Management Authority and the Westmoreland Municipal Corporation.
   
A member of  the Office of  Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management also serves on the committee.
